about this item

Modern Indian Painting presents a survey of Indian painting from the late nineteenth century to the present day, covering major movements including the Bengal School, the Progressive Artists Group and developments since Independence. Focusing on the private collection of Jane and Kito de Boer - remarkable for its broad range and scope - the book clearly delineates major developments over a long period of time, while explaining and illustrating them with previously unpublished examples by many major artists.Numbering around 1,000 works, the de Boer collection (currently in London and Dubai) is one of the largest and most significant collections of modern Indian painting in private hands. The book is based on fresh research by leading authorities in the field, who have studied the collection at first hand. The expertise of each contributor is grounded in their previous publications, but here they go beyond established positions, while addressing new material. The book is thus essential to the specialist while at the same time presenting a broad introduction to the field for the benefit of the general reader.
